    By Amanda Gerut  August 13, 2018

    Chief information officers and other tech executives have bemoaned boards’ lack of understanding about IT, cyber security and technology for years. But now a new website aims to bring some of those backroom concerns to boards’ attention.

    The Digital Directors Network, which launched this summer, is a new resource for board-level education on IT, technology and cyber security. In addition, the Digital Directors Network (DDN) will maintain a curated list of CIOsand chief information security officers (CISOs), chief technology officers, chief risk officers and other technology executives for boards interested in recruiting new directors with tech expertise. The DDN initiative has partnered with security and risk management company NTT Security and the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California and plans to roll out short informational videos and other educational resources for board members more fully in the fall.The DDN announced a new partnership with artificial-intelligence powered public filing analysis company MyLogIQ last week.

    "The future of business runs through IT but data breaches are putting the digital future at risk," says DDN Founder and CEO Bob Zukis. "Digital success or failure starts at the top, with the board.  Corporations can be doing a much better job at both leading with IT, while also protecting the data we entrust them with."

"We're pushing the boardroom digital diversity agenda forward for all directors. This is a boardroom skillsetthat's long overdue and an issue that is squarely in the public interest," said Zukis.
